Good Bait

LP (Item 33506) Riverside, Early 50s — Condition: Very Good+
Originally: 9.99
Late 60s issue of some material that was recorded early in the producing career of Orrin Keepnews – and which features trumpeter Fats Navarro in the company of a hip group of boppers – a lineup that includes Allan Eager on tenor, Tadd Dameron on piano, Curley Russell on bass, and Kenny Clarke on drums – plus a bit of work from the obscure alto player Rudy Williams! Titles include seminal readings of lots of Dameron classics – like "Tadd Walk", "Good Bait", "The Squirrel", and "Our Delight".  © 1996-2022, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Cover has a tiny cutout hole.)

Very Good + (plus)

  • Vinyl should be very clean, but can have less luster than near mint.
  • Should still shine under a light, but one or two marks may show up when tilted.
  • Can have a few small marks that may show up easily, but which do not affect play at all. Most marks of this quality will disappear when the record is tilted, and will not be felt with the back of a fingernail.
  • This is the kind of record that will play "near mint", but which will have some signs of use (although not major ones).
  • May have slight surface noise when played.

Additional Marks & Notes

If something is noteworthy, we try to note it in the comments — especially if it is an oddity that is the only wrong thing about the record. This might include, but isn't limited to, warped records, tracks that skip, cover damage or wear as noted above, or strictly cosmetic flaws.

Jean Thielemans (Toots Thielemans)

Man Bites Harmonica
Riverside, 1957. Very Good+
One of the first American albums from Belgian guitarist and harmonica player Toots Thielemans – a sharp-edged session that brings a new level of jazz into his work! The title's hokey, but the sound is totally great – with Toots on both harmonica and guitar, usually more of the former ... LP, Vinyl record album

Milt Jackson & Wes Montgomery

Bags Meets Wes!
Riverside, 1961. Near Mint-
A beautiful combination we'd like to hear more of – one that comes from the meeting of Milt Jackson's vibes and the guitar of Wes Montgomery – both recorded here in easygoing brilliance! The session's a nice break from the usual sound of both players at the time – and although ... LP, Vinyl record album

Cannonball Adderley

Know What I Mean?
Riverside, 1961. Near Mint-
Beautiful early work from Cannonball Adderley – and a record that's quite different than most of his better known sets from the time! The album's more spare and stripped-down than usual – with Cannon's alto in a quartet alongside Bill Evans on piano, Percy Heath on bass, and Connie Kay ... LP, Vinyl record album
Riverside, 1959. Very Good
One of the greatest Cannonball Adderley albums from the Riverside years – a completely smoking live date recorded in San Francisco, often with long tracks that really let the group open up and do their thing!

Nice Milestone 2-fer collected and remastered in 1975, of the Riverside LP Everybody Digs Bill Evans, an unreleased trio side and one outtake from the Interplay sessions.

Wynton Kelly

Kelly Blue
Riverside, 1959. Good
A great little session from Wynton Kelly – one that has him breaking out of the lyrical roots of his trio work, and hitting some harder notes as a leader of a larger hardbop group! The album features Kelly working in both trio and sextet format – the latter with players who include Nat ... LP, Vinyl record album
Riverside, Late 50s/Early 60s. Very Good
A collection of sides cut in the early 60s by Wes for Riverside, collected later when the label was owned by ABC.

Coleman Hawkins

Hawk Flies High
Riverside, 1957. Near Mint-
A key album in the reintroduction of Coleman Hawkins in the late 50s – recorded in a style that still bears a lot of traces of earlier years, but at a time when Hawk was being claimed as a key influence by a variety of younger modernists! The set's got a sense of freedom that's really ... LP, Vinyl record album
Riverside, 1955. Near Mint-
An early full length album by Randy Weston – one that mostly features tunes by other composers, all given a slightly modern twist at the piano! The style here isn't as arch-modern or African-inspired as some of Weston's other 50s work – but it's still plenty darn great, and very much ... LP, Vinyl record album

Sonny Rollins

Alfie
Impulse, 1965. Near Mint- Gatefold
A beautiful soundtrack to the dark British comedy of the same name – starring a young Michael Caine! You might expect it to be a bit schmaltzy, but it's pure jazz all the way through, and features strong inside playing by Rollins over lively orchestrations by Oliver Nelson – filled ...

Johnny Hammond

Gambler's Life
Salvation, 1974. Very Good+
An amazing bit of jazz funk from Johnny Hammond – and one of his greatest LPs! This is the first album he recorded with Larry Mizell, cut right before the pair of them went on to do the landmark Gears LP. While this one never became as famous as Gears, it's got some fantastic moments that ... LP, Vinyl record album
